Treehouse World, the unique adventure park located just off Phoenixville Pike in West Chester, is taking treehouse fun to the max, writes Jan Carabeo for CBS Philly.
“We’re creative, and we just follow our whimsy,” said Treehouse World owner Dan Wright.
The first treehouse built was Greybeard, an 18-sided structure that looks like it’s floating.
“Greybeard has the whole perimeter suspended by cables, so it actually moves around as you walk through it,” said Wright. “It’s got a slide that comes out of it like the tongue. And there’s a nose. So, we made it look like an old man’s face in the trees.”
Today, Treehouse World offers many different platforms, with suspended bridges and elaborate designs spread over 14 acres of wooded grounds. Among the attractions is a 75-foot-long locomotive with six cars. One of the newer additions, a pirate ship, includes a plank giving visitors the chance to jump off from a height of 35 feet.
“It takes me a while to jump off, but it’s a lot of fun when I do,” said 13-year-old Lauren Inman.
